Reviews about D. Wayne : The High-Rolling and Fast Times of America's Premier Horse Trainer (7):
MrDog
A story and lesson from one of the best that has ever done it. I liked this book because I learned a lot about the horse business. I enjoyed it as a fast read that did not lumber along but rather kept you interested in each story and chapter. I would recommend this as a good read fro anyone interested in the business of horse racing. A lot of useful information is in between those book covers

Being a long time professional horseman, I am used to authors and writers getting mixed up about horsey facts and figures and not knowing the he's from the she's. I totally discounted the errors and did not let them detract from enjoying the story of D. Wayne. Chances are that had someone fact checked the book they too would know no more than the author!
D. Wayne was super influential in horse racing and I thoroughly enjoyed his story. I met him once and can visualize him in every scenario of this book. My husband was a jockey for many years and he too thoroughly enjoyed the story.

By PAGE 1!, there are two serious mistakes. Established trainer and Lukas protege Mark Hennig is referred to as Mark Henning in the introduction and the successful sprinter City Zip is called Zip City. And that's on page 1! Another huge mistake is that the author says Gary Stevens won the 1994 Derby on Go For Gin. These are inexcusable errors that do illustrate a lack of professionalism on the part of the author and a degree of disrespect to Lukas himself. So, if you can forgive that, then check it out. I guess Wayne Lukas isn't Gandhi or Churchill so you can't choose between hundreds of different bios!

This is a very interesting book about one of the most successful Thoroughbred trainers in racing. I savored every page.
Velellan
Anything about thoroughbred race horses I love
Umdwyn

I was at the AQHA Convention when D. Wayne Lukas was inducted into the AQHA Hall Of Fame. I very much enjoyed the book and D Wayne's enthusiasm and passion for Horse Racing.
Great book! Enjoyed it immensely!
